[Plugin: TDO Mini Forms] simple posting from a page (6 posts)

    I am trying to use TDO mini forms to allow a user to select a menu to write a simple post using their own theme, without having to be in the Dashboard. The only submitter would be the "Editor" -- not Subscribers or non-registered users, and monderation would not be required. This is for a very simple journal entry type blog -- the simpler the better.

    It looks like TDO mini forms can only be put in a sidebar with the widget. I would like to put it on a page that I can have a menu created by the page list.

    Is this possible with TDO mini forms?

    from the readme file

    You can use the button in the options menu to create a page automatically.

    Or instead you can add:

    [tdomf_form1]

    to any post or page. The plugin will replace this with your Form 1. If you have multiple forms, each form has an ID. Just replace the '1' with the correct form ID.

    You can add it to your template directly using this template tag:

    <?php tdomf_the_form(1); ?>

    Wow, thanks for the fast reply.

    Will I be able to make it so that only the "Editor" can use the form?

    I think I may be able to do this without role manager. Thanks again for your help.
